Reports: Liverpool to welcome their legends very soon at Anfield

Liverpool legends vs Celtic Legends

A charity match might be into consideration including Liverpool and Celtic legends very soon.

Charity match at Anfield between Liverpool and Celtic legends

The LFC Foundation has announced the next legends charity game, which will take place in March and include some of Liverpool’s most illustrious former players. The Reds’ opponent on this occasion is Celtic, and this game will be the first time the sets of legends from both teams will ever meet.

The match is scheduled for Saturday, March 25, 2023, during the subsequent international break, with a 3 pm kickoff (GMT). It goes without saying that the two teams are connected through a lot of managers and players, as well as our well-known anthem You’ll Never Walk Alone.

Once more, the whole amount of money generated from the game will go toward the programs of the LFC Foundation and other partner charities.

What’s in store?

The roster of Liverpool Legends that will participate in this match will be revealed in the upcoming weeks and months. The lineup for Celtic will also be unveiled gradually; in a charity game against Cleary Celtic earlier this year, players like Danny McGrain, Roy Aiken, Alan Stubbs, Bobby Petta, Rudi Vata, and Tommy Johnston all made appearances.

Liverpool defeated Man United in two games played at Old Trafford and Anfield earlier this year during the Legends matchups. The two ex-Reds who scored in the home victory were Mark Gonzalez and Florent Sinama-Pongolle. Other players that appeared were Xabi Alonso, Martin Skrtel, Jerzy Dudek, and Maxi Rodriguez.

They also faced the Barcelona Legends at Anfield in March of last year, in addition to previous matches against Rangers, AC Milan, Bayern Munich, and Real Madrid. The previous six legendary charity matches hosted at Anfield collected a combined $5 million for the Liverpool Football Club Foundation and its charitable partners. The home game versus United generated more than £500,000 of that total.

Additionally, a payment will be made to Celtic’s official charity, the Celtic FC Foundation, which supports young adults and children who are most in need.
